Warm Layers



Recent Instagram photos of New York’s snow storms have been making me miss life in the Northern hemisphere. It definitely feels odd to me that I’m not wearing at least three layers during February. But even though Hong Kong is 15 degrees positive rather than negative, I still see many Hong Kongers who are just as bundled up as New Yorkers – South East Asians really do not enjoy the cold.


I’ve been wearing my black top coat nonstop over this winter season. To update its look on a colder day, I pulled over the shawl collar of my knit cardigan over its lapel. When my friends saw me wearing this from afar, they actually remarked that they liked my new coat! I plan to experiment with this styling again on the next chilly day that comes, perhaps with this amazing piece from Rag & Bone.





I’m wearing:

Coat : Express (great designer sale options here) | Sweater : Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren (similar here) | Shirt : Banana Republic | Jeans : Uniqlo | Boots : All Saints | Bag : Frank & Oak

    Wow you look great Justin, you really know how to layer up in style (despite the lack of cold). Actually, Vancouver is currently experiencing weather of 11-15 degrees as well so we’re kinda similar to you. But I know that places like Toronto still have snow on the ground so it’s obviously a different story over there. I love that coat and the classic look of this outfit, classic white shirts are always a good choice.

    Hope you’re doing well in HK and so jealous that you’re eating all that yummy food over there 😛
